Suspiria Remake Moving Forward


In a Variety article talking about Tilda Swinton’s new film I Am Love, that film’s director Luca Guadagnino says his production company First Sun is moving forward on a remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 cult horror pic Suspiria. Shooting will start in 2010 and David Gordon Green is still attached to direct.

Natalie Portman has been rumored to play the lead in the redo, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
